MOSCOW, July 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russian aircraft building needs a new strategy, vice-premier Dmitry Rogozin said.
“Despite all measures, our industrialists and manufacturers lost the civil aviation market. Let’s not remember why this has happened. But that is just the point: 80 percent of civil aircraft are foreign-made. The situation is intolerable. Thus, it is necessary to work out a new strategy,” Rogozin said at a meeting devoted to civil and military aviation.
The vice-premier said all talks around the United Aircraft Corporation should be turned into a concrete programme in order to develop the Russian aircraft industry. He cited data saying one job in the aircraft building creates new jobs in allied industries.
“Our hour zones oblige us to produce new models in order to meet the needs of innovation companies and other firms working on the Russian market,” Rogozin said.
“The resolution of this problem will allow us to enter foreign markets,” the vice-premier added.
